This challenging 6.2-mile running race boasts more than a 2,000-foot elevation gain as it climbs from downtown Norton to the 4,200-foot High Knob summit. An observation tower atop the mountain offers 360-degree views of distant peaks as far away as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and West Virginia. This will be the ninth annual climb. This race is part of the High Knob Triple Crown running series. See www.highknobtriplecrown.wix.com/hktc for more details.
